  •  Lower Back Chapter          (Duration : 41.35s)

Lower-Back-Stretch---2There are many reasons why you get a sore lower back. Too much sitting, inherited tendencies or poor habits will contribute. In simple terms it is because there is too much tension in some muscles and too much slack in others. The mechanics of the spine, sacrum and pelvis become dysfunctional and you become increasingly susceptible to injury. Mostly there is a gradual build up of tension over time, Lower-Back-3D-5 (2)the body adapts to this until it can no longer accommodate such levels of tension. Then some small event happens and you end up in huge amounts of pain. This chapter will explain the triggers to lower back problems and the 3D animation will show how the lower back function and the reasons for discomfort or pain. The stretching routines will overcome present problems and prevent future ones.

  •  Hips and Pelvis Chapter             (Duration : 24.11s) 

Hips-and-Pelvis-Stretch-8-ESSPain in the groin is common. The muscle usually involved is the Hip Flexor or Psoas. It is attached to the front of each of the lumbar vertebrae. It traverses through the pelvis and exits at the groin attaching to the upper thigh bone or Femur. Tightness in this muscle can cause inflammation at its attachment point creating pain in the groin.

The main muscles  that cause grief are called Gluteus Medius and Gluteus Minimus. They are the smaller cousins of Hamstring-Pain-from-Grointhe bigger buttock muscle Gluteus Maximus which is looser by nature. These muscles are often tight and the pain pattern is typically quite defined to the lateral hip area. This chapter will explain the triggers to hips and pelvis problems and the 3D animation will show how the hips and pelvis function and the reasons for discomfort or pain. The stretching routines will overcome present problems and prevent future ones.

  •  Knees and Thighs Chapter         (Duration 28.02s) 

Lunge-Knees-+-ThighsLigamentous straps hold the knee joint together and the muscles that come down from the thigh, wrap around the knee and attach to the lower leg. Muscle pain typically presents in the belly of the muscle or where it attaches to the bone. A painful joint is often the tightness of the muscle pulling at its attachment point. Pain on the inside of the knee is likely excessive tension in the Adductor group – the muscles on the inside of the leg. Pain above, below or under your knee cap could be excessive tension in the Quad group. Pain at the back of the knee can be the result of hamstring tension. Pain on the outside can be excessive Gluteus-Minimustension in the ITB. Cartilage disc or ligament damage can be another reason for pain in the knee. This chapter will explain the triggers to knee and thigh problems and the 3D animation will show how the knees and thighs function and the reasons for discomfort or pain.

  •  Legs, Feet and Ankles Chapter       (Duration 13.13s

FootAnkle-StretchOur feet and ankles do a huge amount of work. They are like springs. Arches length ways and across the fore foot act like shock absorbers. They are held and maintained by muscles and ligaments in the foot and up into the leg. A number of common situations can result in foot, ankle and leg problems.

Excessive muscle tension in the leg prevents the foot from flexing thus placing more strain on the spring dynamic of the foot and muscle attachments. This commonly presents as Achilles tendon inflammation at the back of the heel. Also shin splints where the Sole-of-Footmuscle on the front of the leg (shin) is pulling excessively at its attachment to the bone. This chapter will explain the triggers to legs, feet and ankle problems and the 3D animation will show how these function and the reasons for discomfort or pain. The stretching routines will overcome present problems and prevent future ones.
